Reducing the Impact of Corrosion in Construction via Lean based Process Innovation

Event Description

Recent infrastructure failures such as Genoa Bridge collapse, which killed 43 people and caused major disruption, highlights the need for effective corrosion monitoring and protection and to embrace good corrosion maintenance processes as an integral part of asset construction and maintenance. Corrosion protection is valuable in preventing unplanned production stoppages or safety risks as a result of asset performance reduction. Assets such as bridges, platforms and critical physical infrastructure require corrosion protection and monitoring as an integral part of the maintenance programme throughout the life of the asset.

University of Salford will be hosting this event at its Media City Campus. Events bring together experts in Lean Construction, Process Innovation and Corrosion specialists. The key focus is to raise awareness among Supply Chain contractors of the importance Corrosion Protection for the whole life cost of assets, as well as develop an understanding about their requirements, with a view to reduce defects and reworks, which often results in delays, cost overruns and increased  H&S risks for the project. Panel discussion and group exercises will focus on use of innovative strategies to involve specialist sub-contractors’ expertise in early design and planning stages, using lean principles as a framework to integrate entire supply chain.

Fundamentals of Corrosion for Engineers

A new Fundamentals of Corrosion course is presented by the Institute of Corrosion.  The course will be based on practical information and hands-on examples as well as relevant background theory. Attendees on the course will be given a wide ranging introduction to all the major aspects of corrosion engineering.

Successful completion of the course and the associated examination will required for obtaining Professional membership of ICorr for those without either formal qualifications in corrosion or the relevant time experience.

Who is the course for?

The course will be suitable for engineers, paint inspectors, designers, technicians and scientists wishing to expand their career opportunities into the corrosion field or wanting to broaden or refresh their knowledge of corrosion in general.

Civil, mechanical, chemical and naval engineers will find the course aids their ability to assess potential or actual corrosion situations and to be able build anti-corrosion measures and strategies into their projects.  It will also help to understand the mechanisms and causes of common premature failures.

The course will take place over a 5 day period in a classroom format; four days being talks and practical sessions and the fifth day being a short review and the examination.  There will be opportunities to ask questions at all times during the course.Course Content.

The course will include:

  • Corrosion of common metals.
  • Basic corrosion science.
  • Common corrosion mechanisms; galvanic, crevice, pitting, deposition, corrosion under deposit/lagging, stress corrosion and cracking.
  • The electrochemical series and its practical uses.
  • Methods for preventing or managing corrosion, including Inhibitors/passivation.
  • Introduction to cathodic protection.
  • Surface preparation challenges, paints & coatings.
  • Corrosion and environmental conditions.
  • Material selection & design.
  • Corrosion testing and monitoring.

Course Presenter.

The course will be presented by Dr Jane Lomas (FICorr).

Jane is an experienced corrosion & coatings engineer at Amtec Consultants Ltd with a multi-disciplinary background. She has over 30 years practical experience of marine corrosion and building coatings issues, from project design, through new building to guarantee claims; ongoing coating maintenance problems and repair issues.

She also works on a global basis with failure investigations and product liability claims in the automotive, industrial, aerospace and water treatment industries as an investigator and problem solver.

Jane manages multi-company projects for both R&D purposes and claims cases and also runs the laboratory at Amtec.

  • Fellow – Institute of Corrosion (FICorr)
  • Honorary Secretary, Trustee and Council Member of ICorr.

Guest Presenter:

Dr Les Callow is a metallurgist and corrosion engineer with over 40 years practical experience of corrosion across a wide range of industries.

Currently, he is primarily working as a technical expert for many litigation cases and appears at arbitration, court, etc, as an expert witness.

The Fundamentals of Corrosion for Engineers will be held on 9th to 13th October 2017 between 09.30 and 17.00 each day at Elcometer Ltd, Droylsden, Manchester.

The cost will be £950 + VAT per person and includes lunches and refreshments on each day.  Participants will need to arrange their own accommodation and information on local hotels, etc can be provided on request.

Due to the size of the room available, this course will be limited to 10 people, so early booking is recommended.
